I went to the shelter to look around. My girls love animals and we would go every now and then. As we were checking out the dogs, the most adorable face stuck out to us. I fell in love instantly. We asked to meet then Ponchie and played with him for quite a bit. I brought my now ex over to meet him and he was smart enough to drop a toy at his feet. After dinner and discussion we came back and adopted him. Sam has been the sweetest dog and is now 9 years old (he was a year old then). We still love this amazing dog so much and am so blessed to have him in our lives.
